A pioneering introduction

According to a press release, the tech giant has introduced this premium range to reimagine gaming with the players’ needs in mind.

Moreover, this line boasts an industry first as it has received a certificate by TÜV Rheinland for its high performance 1000R curved display and eye comfort. Ultimately, a completely immersive gaming journey is set to be enabled.

This unique feature is backed by high-quality QLED displays, 240Hz refresh rates, and 1ms (GTG) response times. In addition, both units are Nvidia’s G-Sync compatible. Therefore, a smooth and precise output will be ensured for a full-bodied experience.

The difference between the two

The Odyssey G9 is the bigger of the pair as this arrives with a sizeable 49-inch VA curved display, supported by Infinity Core Lighting. Furthermore, its HDR 1000 format is backed by a strong resolution of 5,120 x 1,440 (DQHD).

Altogether, Samsung is seeking to reproduce the visual images that game creators intended by realizing rapid and seamless gameplay.
